In 2004, Seoul introduced a new a smart card system that significantly changed the way Public Transportation System work in the city. This card, named T-Money card and using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology, aimed to improve the public transportation system of Seoul by bringing different advantages to users such as the possibility to transfer freely between all the
transportation modes, removing the cash payment burden and time losses at the transportation gates and to enable the fleets in the public transportation system to better respect their schedules. More than improving the conditions of the urban transportation system, the T-Money card had a real impact on the lives of many urban dwellers by making them save important amounts of money because of the new fare system that could be introduced in Seoul thanks to this innovation.
